Brief Outline of the show: Penned by the wonderful Jill Hyem – writer of TV series Tenko, Howard’s Way, Wish Me Luck and The House of ElliotWE’LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS is a feel-good play with laughter, tears and promise of romance, Lovely love and not so lovely anger, friendship and loyalty. And the advantages of growing older. This play is designed to leave the audience charmed, amused, thoughtful – and most definitely smiling.
